LEADWELL's mission is to constantly search for excellence and gain respect in the industry. Using our 25 years of experience, the entire staff at LEADWELL pledges to bring innovation, quality assurance, worldclass after sales service, and environmentally friendly machine tools to the worldwide marketplace.


We strive to win the respect of both our customers and world wide competitors alike.












  • LEADWELL uses only top quality well-ribbed casting.
  • Advanced Finite Elements Analysis (FEA) is used for analyzing new casting to determine the size and location of all internal ribs, ensuring high torsional stiffness and minimum vibration.
  • The cast iron base, saddle, headstock, slide and tailstock are ruggedly constructed for superior stability and machining accuracy.
  • Isolated gear box (option).
  • Stardard H.T.D belt.

The headstock is a thermally symmetric design with heat dissipating fins. This design prevents thermal distortion during long machining cycles.

Easy Chip Disposal.











  • The 45 - degree slant bed design allows chips to fall directly into the chip tank,avoiding accumulation inside the machine.
  • The chip tank has large wheels, making it easy to move for chip removal and cleaning.
  • An available on all models.
Box Ways (LTC series).

The LTC-Series utillizes precision box ways for high hhorse power machining. The extra rigidity of the box ways provides stability for precision turning.

Double Nut ball Screws.

LEADWELL uses only premium quality preloaded double-nut ballscrews from THK, PMI, Rexroth (STAR) and HIWIN. Ezch ball screw is accurately aligned parallel to the box ways and anchored at both ends.

  • The quill adjustment is hydralic adding to the rigidity of te machine
  • Progrmmable tailstock is standard on LTC-50 series all models.
Tool Setter option.

The tool setter has a touch sensor that can measure varying tool lengths and detect broken tools.It can be easily programmed to store all the tool information to reduce tool changing time.

Live Tooling Option & C-Axis Option.

The Live Tooling option turns the turret into multiple auxiliary spindles.
The turret spindle supports milling,drilling,and tapping.

The headstock spindle becomes a fully programmable servo axis with the C-Axis option.
C Axis index resolution:0.001 degrees.

By synchronizing the optional C Axis with the live tooling,machining of cylindrical cams and other complex work pieces becomes easy,saving time and money for each part.
Switching between normal turning & synchronization with live tooling takes less than 1 second.

Spindle bore 10.5" (266mm) OPT.











  • Air jet around spindle nose
  • Wide bearing spacing for high gigidity
  • Special heat treatment for critical parts
  • Highly accurate draw tube mechanism
  • Precision Labyrinth seal
  • Large diameter quill for high rigidity
  • Optimum spacing of front bearings to spindle nose for highest rigidity
